Hello I am a 45 years old woman, since yesterday I have difficulties to fall asleep, I don’t feel sleepy at all, not even a little bit. Not even yawning. I feel fresh even at night. I can’t fall asleep in daytime or nightime no matter how hard I force myself. I don’t feel stress. I’m not tired. But why I feel like this?
